We will need help preparing and delivering burritos to houseless and hungry folks downtown. If you are interested in volunteering your time, please join us at NW Portland Hostel in the large kitchen on the north side, behind all the construction. It is key card secured - so text or call me and I'll let you in. (541) 441-2968 425 NW 18th Avenue Portland, OR 97209 P.S. Santa Fe Taqueria is now donating most of the ingredients for the Portland Burrito Project and Escape Bar and Grill and Kay Pierce has been donating 100 bottles of water to include with the burritos. A HUGE thank you to Maya and her staff at Santa Fe , Jen and her staff at the Escape, and Kay. I encourage you to support these local businesses! It's good stuff. And also, people helping people. Wonderful! (http://santafetaqueria.com) (https://www.facebook.com/Escape-Bar-and-Grill-339219829441145/) I normally spend about $50-$80 out of pocket each month to supplement what Maya provides (i.e. 100 large restaurant style tortillas, extra salsa, corn, periodic replacement of tinfoil and wax paper for wrapping, and gloves). Any donation you can provide would help me cover these costs. Thank you! Jeana Hooker https://www.facebook.com/events/1764821333788937/

By Jonathan Tolins Featuring James Sharinghousen Winner of the 2014-2015 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show. "Jonathan Tolins has concocted an irresistible one-man play from the most peculiar of fictitious premises - an underemployed Los Angeles actor goes to work in Barbra Streisand's Malibu California basement - allowing the playwright to ruminate with delicious wit and perspicacity on the solitude of celebrity, the love-hate attraction between gay men and divas, and the melancholy that lurks beneath narcissism. This seriously funny slice of absurdist whimsy creates the illusion of a stage filled with multiple people, all of then with their own droll point of view." - NY Times. "A fantasy so delightful you wish it were true." - The New Yorker. "Hilarious! Beyond Brilliant. This show will go down like butta'!" - Entertainment Weekly. "Fantastically funny," - NY Post Tickets are $15-$35 depending on your seating preference - no handling charge

Worlds apart, a five-star chef, a twelve year-old girl, and a retired schoolteacher discover how their individual efforts to feed the poor ignite a movement in the fight against hunger. This documentary tells tale of these remarkable individuals and the unexpected challenges they face. Despite being constantly reminded that hunger is far too big for one person to solve, they persevere and see their impact ripple further than their individual actions. Award-winning chef Narayanan Krishnan, fighting against the caste system in India, quits his job to begin a life of cooking and hand-delivering fresh meals to hundreds of people in his hometown. Katie Stagliano’s planting of a single cabbage seedling when she was nine years old blossoms into Katie’s Krops, a nonprofit with 73 gardens dedicated to ending hunger. Retired middle school teacher Mr. Law battles personal health issues as he hand delivers more than a thousand sandwiches nightly to the hungry in Minneapolis. This documentary tells the tale of these remarkable individuals and the challenges they face when upholding their values and forging their own path of service to others.

Itself influenced by Arthur Schnitzler's La Ronde, sci-fi comics, and copious alcohol use, Fassbinder's Marilyn Monroe contre les vampires is a hilarious and unflinching stab at all classes of society. In this (literally) biting social satire, Phoebe Zeitgeist is a singing alien sent to Earth to report back an eyewitness account of human democracy in action. She encounters characters from all areas of life who educate her well on what it means to be human. However, Phoebe has a problem: she learns our words, but she still can't figure US out. Marilyn Monroe drives a fever pitch, culminating in the sexiest version of Hegel's Science of Logic ever set to music. Beer and wine will be served. Liminal combines performance art, video and opera into a unique, immersive experience. A hybrid of theatre and gallery installation, of live performance and video, there is no central stage and audiences are invited to walk around the 360-degree videoscape and performance (seating is provided for those needing it). The viewer encounters both live and recorded performers: a ghostly ensemble of video actors projected onto screens throughout the space, interacting with each other, with Phoebe and with the audience to create a unique video-opera experience. Also: Vampires. TRIGGER WARNINGS: substance abuse, sexual harassment, semiosis, societal complacency, firearms, fetishes, Donald J. Trump, structuralism, choking, white people, biting, suicide, Hegel. Featuring Fassbinder zines by Going Places written by Rainer Werner Fassbinder translated by Denis Calandra direction, original music and media design by John Berendzen developed by John Berendzen and the ensemble costume by Manot VonRocket and Faerin Millington video and tech by Rory Breshears, Ben Purdy, Sharon Porter, Jared Lee featuring Carissa Burkett (soprano) as Phoebe Zeitgeist with Linda Austin, Todd Van Voris, Carla Grant, Wayne Haythorn, Eleanor Johnson, Don Kern, Alex Reagan, Danielle Ross, and introducing Evan Corcoran as Donald J.

From the humble beginnings of preaching at his portable pulpit on New York City subways, to having a congregation of thousands - Bill Talen (aka Rev.

The first City Council hearing for the proposed inclusionary housing program will take place on December 8, starting at 2pm at Portland City Hall. Testimony from the public will be heard at this time. The Oregon State Legislature passed a bill in March 2016, allowing cities to require affordable housing in larger multi-dwelling projects. Known as Inclusionary Housing, Oregon was previously the only state, other than Texas, where this approach to affordable housing provision was prohibited. The Portland Bureau of Housing (PHB) spearheaded the City’s development of an Inclusionary Housing Program and began to set program requirements with input from community members, a panel of experts, economic consultants, and an inter-bureau technical team made up of representatives from the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS), the Bureau of Development Services and the Office of the City Attorney. In conjunction, with PHB efforts, BPS began crafting updates to Portland Zoning Code regulations to implement the program and add affordable housing density bonuses granted for projects that comply with program requirements. Further information of the Inclusionary Housing Program can be found here: http://www.portlandoregon.gov/phb/70578 and the Proposed Draft of the Inclusionary Housing Zoning Code Project can be found here: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/article/590320. https://www.facebook.com/events/1601628030141316/

International Human Rights Day is observed by the international community every year on December 10 to commemorate the United Nations General Assembly adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. It is a day of solidarity and remembrance of people all over the world who continue to be oppressed by human rights violations - those who are systematically marginalized, disappeared, imprisoned, and killed.

This seriously funny slice of absurdist whimsy creates the illusion of a stage filled with multiple people, all of then with their own droll point of view." - NY Times.

a 360º immersive sci-fi video opera Seven shows, limited seating: Thursday, December 8 at 7:30 Friday, December 9 at 7:30 & 9:30 Saturday, December 10 at 7:30 & 9:30 Sunday, December 11 at 5:30 & 7:30 tickets at liminalgroup.org $20 general (student and artist rates available) mature content, recommended ages 14+ This December 8-11, Liminal fights back with Marilyn Monroe contre les vampires, an operatic multimedia installation performance of a 1972 darkly comic anti-establishment play written by influential enfant terrible filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Itself influenced by Arthur Schnitzler's La Ronde, sci-fi comics, and copious alcohol use, Fassbinder's Marilyn Monroe contre les vampires is a hilarious and unflinching stab at all classes of society. In this (literally) biting social satire, Phoebe Zeitgeist is a singing alien sent to Earth to report back an eyewitness account of human democracy in action. She encounters characters from all areas of life who educate her well on what it means to be human. However, Phoebe has a problem: she learns our words, but she still can't figure US out. Marilyn Monroe drives a fever pitch, culminating in the sexiest version of Hegel's Science of Logic ever set to music. Beer and wine will be served. Liminal combines performance art, video and opera into a unique, immersive experience. A hybrid of theatre and gallery installation, of live performance and video, there is no central stage and audiences are invited to walk around the 360-degree videoscape and performance (seating is provided for those needing it). The viewer encounters both live and recorded performers: a ghostly ensemble of video actors projected onto screens throughout the space, interacting with each other, with Phoebe and with the audience to create a unique video-opera experience. Also: Vampires. TRIGGER WARNINGS: substance abuse, sexual harassment, semiosis, societal complacency, firearms, fetishes, Donald J. Trump, structuralism, choking, white people, biting, suicide, Hegel. Featuring Fassbinder zines by Going Places written by Rainer Werner Fassbinder translated by Denis Calandra direction, original music and media design by John Berendzen developed by John Berendzen and the ensemble costume by Manot VonRocket and Faerin Millington video and tech by Rory Breshears, Ben Purdy, Sharon Porter, Jared Lee featuring Carissa Burkett (soprano) as Phoebe Zeitgeist with Linda Austin, Todd Van Voris, Carla Grant, Wayne Haythorn, Eleanor Johnson, Don Kern, Alex Reagan, Danielle Ross, and introducing Evan Corcoran as Donald J.

Please join Chloe Eudaly and friends for a radical chorus workshop and skillshare led by Moe Bowstern, founding member of the Amalgamated Everlasting Union Chorus Local 824 and Erin Yanke of KBOO Community Radio! We'll be dusting off the old songbook, learning about how to organize a radical chorus, stay safe at protests, and take care of each other while we sing it out in the streets. Here's the plan for the day: ONE: Moe will give a brief history of the Amalgamated Everlasting Union Chorus local 824, so people have an idea of what we mean by a 'Radical Chorus' TWO: Chorus members will join Moe for an all-hands-in discussion and Q&A about affinity groups, protests and the effectiveness of fabulous outfits. Bring questions! THREE: Chorus members will teach everyone songs, in the tried and true line-by-line method, from the songbook provided at the event and we will sing together. FOUR (BEYOND): You all start radical choruses. Election night was a shock to many of us. The response was impromptu, raw, and fueled by anger, grief, and fear. As astounding as it still seems, it looks like we are in this for the long haul and we need to bring love, joy, and creativity along with us. We welcome all ages, races and ethnicities, religions, countries of origin, genders and orientations, abilities and disabilities. Donations for materials are welcome but not required.

In 1997, Labor’s Community Service Agency, Inc., a United Way Community Partner and local 501(c)3 charitable organization, started a program that has become one of the most appreciated events in the Organized Labor community. The Presents from Partners toy drive and December Giving Party was created to help unemployed parents throughout Greater Portland provide holiday joy to their children. Since then, we have opened our arms and included families from Right 2 Dream, Snow Cap Charities and Bethal Lutheran Youth Drop In Center. Presents from Partners has received national AFL-CIO media recognition for its outreach, and we aspire to increase the number of families served annually according to need. Sponsorship from partners like KBOO make it possible. This event brings holiday joy to families who are suffering layoffs, financial stress or homelessness. Referred families come for a delicious, hot catered lunch, a visit with Santa and Mrs Claus, stocking stuffers with handmade stockings, face painting and a wonderful children’s selection of toys to take home. The children even get to pick out a small gift to give to their parents so that they also may enjoy the pleasure of giving this holiday. It is literally a tour de force of the Labor Movement and their allies.

RESCHEDULED DUE TO WEATHER NEW TIME: December 13th at 9am PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD The first City Council hearing for the proposed inclusionary housing program will take place on December 13, starting at 9am at Portland City Hall. Testimony from the public will be heard at this time. The Oregon State Legislature passed a bill in March 2016, allowing cities to require affordable housing in larger multi-dwelling projects. Known as Inclusionary Housing, Oregon was previously the only state, other than Texas, where this approach to affordable housing provision was prohibited. The Portland Bureau of Housing (PHB) spearheaded the City’s development of an Inclusionary Housing Program and began to set program requirements with input from community members, a panel of experts, economic consultants, and an inter-bureau technical team made up of representatives from the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS), the Bureau of Development Services and the Office of the City Attorney. In conjunction, with PHB efforts, BPS began crafting updates to Portland Zoning Code regulations to implement the program and add affordable housing density bonuses granted for projects that comply with program requirements. Further information of the Inclusionary Housing Program can be found here: http://www.portlandoregon.gov/phb/70578 and the Proposed Draft of the Inclusionary Housing Zoning Code Project can be found here: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/article/590320. https://www.facebook.com/events/1601628030141316/

By Jonathan Tolins Featuring James Sharinghousen Winner of the 2014-2015 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show. "Jonathan Tolins has concocted an irresistible one-man play from the most peculiar of fictitious premises - an underemployed Los Angeles actor goes to work in Barbra Streisand's Malibu California basement - allowing the playwright to ruminate with delicious wit and perspicacity on the solitude of celebrity, the love-hate attraction between gay men and divas, and the melancholy that lurks beneath narcissism. This seriously funny slice of absurdist whimsy creates the illusion of a stage filled with multiple people, all of then with their own droll point of view." - NY Times. "A fantasy so delightful you wish it were true." - The New Yorker. "Hilarious! Beyond Brilliant. This show will go down like butta'!" - Entertainment Weekly. "Fantastically funny," - NY Post Tickets are $15-$35 depending on your seating preference - no handling charge

Join MRG Foundation and Concordia University for the debut of the groundbreaking touring exhibit, Giving Back: The Soul of Philanthropy, Reframed and Exhibited. To celebrate the launch of the exhibit, we are hosting an opening reception on Jan. 13, 2017, 6-9 p.m. at Concordia University’s George R. White Library & Learning Center, 2800 NE Liberty St. in Portland, Ore. The reception is an opportunity to tour the exhibit, hear from its creators, and connect with social justice movement leaders from across Portland. Giving Back illustrates Black philanthropic experiences and giving traditions, grounded in faith, mutuality, responsibility and social justice through luminous photographic prints on metal, iPad kiosks, video, and interactive digital apps featuring music, poetry, photography, narratives, and more. It comprises over a dozen vignettes and more than 50 black-and-white images that depict facets of giving across generations. Images and stories are from the book “Giving Back: A Tribute to Generations of African American Philanthropists” by author Valaida Fullwood and photographer Charles W. Thomas Jr. This is just the first of many community events planned for the exhibit, which will be open through the end of March.

***** Winter Version *** Proceeds from this class go to support the Winyan and Two Spirit Camp at Standing Rock. To register: go to http://bpt.me/2710568 This is a one day workshop focused on building a greater understanding of trauma and liberatory health for change makers, activists, healers and clinicians. This trauma primer covers the basics of trauma and beyond. We’ll review the current theories and understandings of emotional (as well as cultural, historical, systemic and ontological) trauma. Participants will come to understand the primary contributors and the major investigations in the realm of trauma. We will follow the physiological narrative of traumatic experiences centered within neuroscience, with special attention paid to the epigenetic processes. Each of these aspects will be placed within the context of radical public health and structural violence. The physiology of oppression (and privilege) will be reviewed. Clinical and community interventions will be covered, including herbal, naturopathic and allopathic. We’ll wrap up our day with a focus meaningful self-care and trauma stewardship. Cost: 60$ There is a sliding scale of 30-90$ with the true cost of the class being 60$. If cost is not a concern for you, please consider donating towards the top of the pay scale. This class is 6 CEUs for NDs and the cost is 150$. There are .5 pharm hours included. Simply pay 150$ at check out and you will receive your certificate upon completion of the class. The instructor is Lydia Anne M Bartholow, a psychiatric nurse practitioner, educator and community herbalist. Lydia specializes in the intersections of trauma, oppression and addiction. Hosted and sponsored by the Q Center! -- “Lydia somehow makes the neurobiology of trauma really fun and really easy to understand. I was [originally] intimidated but I left feeling energized” – Anonymous Student, 2015 “I had a strong appreciation for how much physiology was in the class, specifically within an anti-oppression context, which is widely underrepresented in trauma courses. I've been to so many over the last decade where trauma was only ever represented as a climatic experience, rather than a continuum so many people face” – Clara Bella Story Parnell, Herbalist, LMT, Medicine Maker "Lydia is an amazing, dynamic teacher who is teaching cutting-edge material about trauma. Taking her class turned ideas I had about trauma work on its head" -- Elissa Mendenhall, ND www.lydiabartholow.com https://www.facebook.com/events/604852159694780/

Join Friends of Trees and the City of Salem in the second of three community planting events to be held at the newly opened Minto Island Conservation Area this planting season. We will be planting native trees and shrubs in along the new multi-use path connecting Riverfront Park with the greater Minto Brown Island Park. This event is funded by the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board and a Meyer Memorial Trust grant, and is one of many events in support of the Year of the Tree campaign, celebrating Salem’s 40th year as a Tree City USA. Please arrive around 8:45am to be registered and assigned to a crew. The event will start promptly at 9:00am.
